Introducing people to Jesus Christ is a key value of our church. Run at least twice a year, this ten week course introduces people to the basics of the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening, 'come and see' environment. There is great food, fellowship, plenty of laughter and discussion. It's also great for those who want to renew their faith.
- What is the point of life?
- What happens when we die?
- Is forgiveness possible?
- What relevance does Jesus have for our lives today?
What is Alpha?
The Alpha course is an opportunity to explore the Christian faith. It's relaxed, non-threatening, low key, friendly and fun/ There is a meal together at the beginning of each session which givew you an opportunity to get to know each other. Listen, learn, discuss and discover. And ask anything. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile. And it's supported by all the main Christian denominations.
